Generally, no hair removal will permanently damage your skin.
However, there are certain precautions you should take to stay safe.
Like any other hair removing cream, Nair or Veet is not
advisable for girls with super sensitive skin. If you don’t have sensitive
skin, though, you can try Nair or Veet, just be sure to follow the
instructions. Doing a test patch on a small area of skin will let you know
whether or not the product will irritate you. Leave the lotion on for a minimum
amount of time, or else the product can burn your skin. Even if you follow the
instructions, Nair or Veet can leave marks like razor burns—don’t worry, they
aren’t permanent. Like razor burns, these marks will too fade away.
Last of all, use common sense. If you try Nair or Veet and
find that it leaves your skin irritated, don’t try it again. You may be
allergic to it, or the active ingredients might make it too harsh for your skin.
